John William Duncanson

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of John William Duncanson in his 95th year on July 30.

Predeceased by his first love Mary and siblings Anne and Andrew, John is survived by his wife Bridget, seven children and step-children, and sixteen grandchildren and step-grandchildren and their respective families.

He put down deep roots in both Mono Township and his beloved Go Home Bay. It was at the latter that he developed a passion for sailing and painting. His spirit will live on in the dozens of Georgian Bay paintings that adorn the walls of countless cottages and homes.

The family extends its sincere appreciation to the professional staff at the Sunnybrook Veterans hospital and caregivers Josie and Gloria.

A Memorial Service will be held in Toronto at Rosedale United Church, 159 Roxborough Drive, on Tuesday September 6 at 3pm. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in John’s memory to the Georgian Bay Land Trust,  www.gblt.org.
